Gantz unanimously approved as next chief of General Staff

The government unanimously approved the appointment of Maj.-Gen. Benny Gantz as the IDF's 20th chief of General Staff on Sunday.
Gantz was tapped as chief of staff last week after former OC Southern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoav Galant’s nomination was withdrawn over allegations he illegally seized land next to his home in Moshav Amikam.
He will assume the IDF's top post on Monday following a ceremony with outgoing Chief of General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi.
